The Auckland Local supports Rescue/Fire on the stance that they have taken against the Auckland Airport Management over their wage negotiations.

A planned two hour full strike on Wednesday 26 April between 1030 hours and 1230 hours will take place.

Due to the nature of the industrial action, we are advising all members not to get involved in any contingency plans that the Auckland Airport Company and the Fire Service may have construed. This includes any stand-ins or cover moves of appliances to the Airport area during that two hour timeframe.

All 50 Rescue/Fire personnel will be picketing outside the domestic terminal between 1030 hours and 1230 hours. If any off duty personnel are able to assist, your support would be greatly appreciated.
